A dVerse Can't At My Plant!

The cat heard can't the other day when obviously one could at their bay, so I figured I would give it a go for another dVerse rhyming show. Of course who knows what will come from my little rhyming bum.

I can't stop!
Here is a gum drop.
Now you are in luck,
As you are now stuck.

I can't go!
Be more specific at your show.
But I hear if you rock,
It might undo the lock.

I can't win!
Now that is a sin.
But you know they give medals to 30th place now too.
So something shiny could easily come due.

I can't find it!
Again not specific as you spit.
Yeah with that drool,
No wonder you can't find things, fool.

I can't do it!
That sure isn't a hit.
May I suggest a pill,
So you can get your fill.

I can't fly!
I should hope you never try.
Then you will go to the sky,
Or down below to that other guy.

I can't travel!
Does you tongue unravel?
Or maybe you don't want to get caught with your pants down,
In some unfamiliar town.

I can't remember!
It only happened last December.
A mind is a terrible thing to waste,
I guess yours ran away post haste.

I can't find anything to write about!
Then don't give a shout.
Writing about not being able to write,
Means you do have something at your site.

I can't rhyme!
That is such a crime.
I'll give you a dime,
If I ever see you as a mime.

The can't sure came into play today at my bay as I had my say this day of May and come what may under a sunny ray. My what a run on sentence on display. But what the hey. For "I can't" has come to pass with a retort from my willing and able little rhyming ass.

Experience spring, have a fling.

  4. If I start flying, someone check for feathers.
    And I choose not to rhyme, thus sparing everyone's eyeballs from the horror of my attempts.

  7. Many times if a person says he / she can't
    they mean instead that they won't

  10. Can't is just a little word
    The meaning might be quite absurd
    It stems from two words put together
    Can and Not, depends on whether
    Take away the NOT, what's left
    The CAN is ready for the test
    Like Pollyann you'll say I CAN
    Of sycophants I'm not a fan

    1. Made me look up a word

  17. Can you do
    a back bend
    or a cartwheel
    at your zoo
    are you able to?

    What about this
    can you fish
    with hands bare
    and catch them
    unaware?

    Or walk on
    the moon
    and whistle
    a tune while
    you are there?

    Can you jump
    really high
    and reach to
    the sky where
    the clouds they
    do play
    high above
    your bay?

    Can you
    climb a building
    like Spider Man
    do or is that
    something you
    just won't do?

    1. Hmmm the first I could do
      Before fecked up at my zoo
      The second I could try
      And will eventually get it and make the fish fry
      The third would be easy too
      Just need to visit NASA's zoo
      I can jump high too
      And I can reach the sky so blue
      Just jump out of a plane
      And that one I will gain
      That last is easy as well
      Grab some sucken cups and away I go
      See, easy peasy at my show

    all that "can't" you "can" ban.
    Take a chance, just live your life,
    get rid of "can't" and all its strife.
    The moral is if you don't,
    it really means that you won't.
    Next time say "I can" for fun,
    keep it up and now you've just begun!

  26. The "I Can't Do It," verse is ironically how a lot of my brain processes went down during my pill popping days, if something seemed like a challenge to me I'd take a few pills to numb my conscious and make it easier, there's no winning on drugs.

  30. Silly Cat!

    Timing is all the same
    when rhynming is the game...

    But surely you should know
    that wherever you go
    Pat will follow
    with words you can show....

    For rhyming is no simple art,
    for even just to start
    requires most of the part
    of a dictionary's memory.....

    That didn't rhyme?
    Should it rhyme all the time?
    Can we skip a beat or two
    before the poem is through?

    Me, oh my,
    what shall I try?
    For "memory" is a line
    without a rhyme!
    Even soft rhyme
    is the kind
    that could be sublime....

    So my mind is blank
    meaning this poem stank...
    Lord, I can't have that
    in the face of Pat and his Cat....

    so I'll try real deep
    and it might be a leap
    but I'll create a word to rhyme memory!
    So out of my own hat
    comes this matter-of-fact -
    I enjoyed your poem immensory!

    1. Wow you went on a rant
      Here at my plant

      To rhyme the whole herd

      With your final say
      A new word came on display
      Can't isn't there
      At your lair

      The cat and pat
      Give you props for that
      But then you could just cheat
      And use the y at your street

      Memory can go with see
      If that were to be
      But then the only word I know for memory
      Is little old emery
